So this is a first for me. Bear with me:
When I go to my Downloads folder, I can sort by Name, backwards or forwards, instantly. Same for Date Modified. But when I try to sort by the Date column, first a green bar begin to fill at the top, and then 24 seconds later, it completes the sort. Once I complete the first sort, I can resort by any column instantly.
Now if I disable Real-time Protection in the Windows Defender Security Center, everything is instant right off, no more problem with sorting by the Date column.
So for some reason Real-time Protection under Windows Defender is making it take a long time to sort folders by Date. (But Date Modified, a different column, never has trouble.)
I would like to be able to BOTH have RTP turned on under WinDefender but yet STILL be able to instantly sort by Date.
How do I do that?
